I wrote Rescue My Heart last summer while surrounded by five teenage girls. Have you ever lived with five teenage girls? Oh, the drama. Oh, the estrogen. They were killing me. So I found myself going to extreme measures to cope. I needed testosterone. I need a big, bad, tough alpha hero to take my mind off my troubles.
Enter Adam Connelly, ex military and current Search and Rescue specialist. Dog Whisperer. Brother. Irritated, sexy, alpha hero who has no intentions of being a hero at all. He’s had it rough, our Adam. Raised in various foster care homes with his younger brother, the one he had to protect, he learned dubious skills best not used in polite company, skills that work for either career criminals or a military career. He was asked by a judge to choose the latter.
So now, in the present, he’s served multiple tours, and on the last one lost half his unit to enemy fire while trapped in a cave. Hello screwed up Alpha Male full of testosterone, welcome to my world.
The teenagers in my life did not make things easy on me. So in turn, I didn’t go easy on poor Adam. Since I was being tortured, I mirrored that torture in my book. I wondered what was the worst thing I could do to a man who isn’t exactly on the people train and is dealing with some PTSD… I decided it might be fun to force him back onto the people train.
Enter Adam’s arch nemesis, a blast from his past. A beautiful, pissed off woman who once upon a time had been the teenage love of his life – before he’d dumped her rather than bring her down with him. Adam is the last person Holly wants to see, and the only one who can help her.
Oh the fun I had losing myself in Adam’s and Holly’s battle ground. Hope you have fun reading RESCUE MY HEART. Let me know! You can reach me on my daily blog or Facebook. Happy Reading! Jill Shalvis, www.jillshalvis.com/blog, www.facebook.com/jillshalvis
